Feb. 10, 2017
Jeff Michael, director of the Center for Business and Policy Research, provided context for this story on the slowdown in hiring in the Bay Area's technology sector. "The technology industry is very dynamic, and there is a lot of change, and it has been growing very rapidly," he told The Mercury News. "So you would expect some increase in these layoff notices over time as these companies get bigger." The story also appeared in the East Bay Times and Santa Cruz Sentinel.
